Hey Gen,
I just wanted to thank you for all the great films you have uploaded recently. Meilies and Chomón were geniuses. You have added to my palette of material as I enjoy searching out obscure silent films and creating soundtracks for them. If I upload anything with your films I will link you in the keywords so that people can see the originals.
And yes, Jeff is terrific.

Hello, Beep.

Nice to "meet" you and thank you for the kind words! I agree with your thoughts on Meilies and Chomón, and I'm glad you like the uploads.

I love that you create from the public domain! That's so exciting and, honestly, it's one of the reasons why I upload. Hearing this from you really made my day! I love music (a lot) and I'd like to have some links to your work please. Did you bookmark them, or is there a search query I can use?

Thank you for wanting to work with the items I've uploaded and link back to them. I will try to upload as much as I can as fast as I can to inspire your creativity - Stay Tuned!

Gen :)

PS: Here are my bookmarks. Some of my uploads are there. If you need inspiration please feel free to browse! http://archive.org/bookmarks/I%20Am%20Gen%20X

PS squared: I'll give you 25 good will points if you score some Valentino footage. It's tricky business but I have a feeling you can handle it. :D

I mean every word of that review.

My reasons for uploading, they all seem altruistic. But it's a lie. Yes, I want to share. Yes, I want people to discover something wonderful. But my most secret, selfish wish is that people like you will make ME art that I can freshly eat and enjoy.

Because, damn right, it's all about me. Didn't you know that? (I am laughing.) So go make me twenty or so more because this kind of thing is a proper return on my investment.

Gen :)
I'll keep uploading if you do, too.

Yipes! Thanks, Gen.
I went ahead and corrected the tags. Thanks for the advice.
And I just sent an email to the archive with the silent film move request.

Yipes? Nonsense. I'll feed you public domain films and you feed me your art. It's a perfectly sensible arrangement, don't you think? Works perfectly for me. :)

See? That's not "Yipes!" that's "Yippee!"
Thank you in advance. :)

Thanks for the encouraging words, Gen.
Here is my page:

It's everything from classical covers to electronic insanity and everything in between. Some things you may like. Others you may find worse than a fingernail on a chalkboard. :(

I have just started my videos recently so when I get up to 50 or more I can start the carport theatre page. For now there's this:
